Notes: Kilbirnie Ladeside's ground is situated at the southern end of the town near the village of Glengarnock. There are two turnstiles, one on the main road and one behind the Glengarnock end goal. The two stands are quite interesting. One is decked out with wooden sleepers for terracing while the other is (like the rest of the ground) concrete stepped. Opposite the two covered enclosures is a small open terrace with the club's hospitality areas also found here. The Ladeside committee have worked hard to spruce up the ground, and believe it is one of the best in the West of Scotland juniors.
